      IMO it goes beyond ride quality. I'd think its also about refinement and power delivery.

      The ten year old motor with a crappy power delivery isn't helping. Put 4 people in it with the A/C on and...

      Maybe its just me, but while my wife has a say in what car I drive, she doesn't ultimately get to decide.

      Therefore, I would be all over a new Golf R, who cares if she doesn't want you to have...

      Eh, it depends.

      On a FWD car, an LSD completely changes the way the car feels around a corner. Without it, the car will not feel nearly as natural, and responsive mid corner. Does that make it...

      Nice find :thumbup:

      I believe the 05's are the last year of the old "cable" throttle before the DBW, and overall a very desirable year.

      Still regret selling mine. The $15K cash equity was too...

      I was just stirring the pot. Neither car is ideal for track use, I was just poking fun at the idea that a stock WRX is a better track car. Both are poor choices for anyone looking for serious track...

      But it doesn't, they are about the same around willow srpings.

      Would be very interested to learn two things about the 997 from experienced owners while we're in a 997 thread.

      How does the AWD model handle compared to the RWD version? Does it lose any feeling...

      Few updates for anyone considering a used B8.

      The stock clutch blows. Had to replace the clutch at 65K. Previous owner must have had bad driving habits because it was 100% shot. Hit gas, RPM rise...

      997 Turbo is pure sex.

      My next car, soon enough.

      Good to hear your feedback, I am getting the sense the 997 is the sweet spot between old and new. It frankly does look a lot more exotic than...

      True, but B8 S4's are 6 yrs old now and I stand by what I said as pretty damn true but I'll stop now as he probably doesn't want an S4. But at least I talking from experience and not someone simply...

      That was extremely scientific and a great addition to the thread. ;)

      I could hop on any internet car forum and find people posting a story about having an issue.

      It's amazing how many people...

      It's not a reason, they aren't expensive to maintain because nothing really breaks. OK, the mechatronics unit in the DSG is known, but the chances of it happening are very low.

      Do you have a B8...

      I think you're looking at the wrong cars ;)

      There is no way in hell I would buy a Fusion over a used B8 S4 if you are looking for a sports sedan.

      S4's are reliable, and outside of being new I...

      ^^^ proof that most people just don't know what they are talking about and never owned an S2000.

      There is absolutely no need to downshift to go up a hill, or pass someone. This is hilariously just...

      When I owned my S2000 I literally floored the car, shifted at exactly 5K (purposely staying on the low cam) and timed my run to 60 MPH.

      It was about 9 seconds. I have videos somewhere but I don't...

      I agree for the most part, but the 5-60 time is very telling. Unless you launch the STI, or stay in boost all the time it's a good bit slower. 5-60 is damn near 7 seconds, about as fast as an s2000...

      You guys are really overblowing the idea that the WRX is best on the backroads or when really pushing it. It's not a sports car, you guys who think it's harsh, or best when pushed need to drive other...

      I love the idea of a Tesla as my next car but I can't help but think they are really sterile. It even looks clinical.

      I want my car to make noises, and feel alive. How can you be enthusiastic...

      Is this sarcastic thread?

      The twins are underpowered, but handle WAY better than this turd.

      On my short list of cars to own (again) when I'm old an gray/bald. I feel for people who see these cars as just another Honda because they truly drive and feel unique.

      The fact they are about as...
